New Caribbean restaurant on Brindleyplace creates 60 jobs

Westside’s newest restaurant is to open its doors this Friday (30 September) with the creation of 60 new jobs.

Caribbean restaurant Turtle Bay forms part of a £40 million transformation of the former Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters at 10 Brindleyplace.

The new development, believed to be the largest construction project at Brindleyplace since the centre was completed in 2009, will also comprise 210,000sq ft of high-quality office space.

Turtle Bay, which has restaurants around the country, including one in Birmingham’s John Bright Street, will occupy 4,465 sq ft on the ground floor of the new site.

The restaurant, which is off Oozells Square, was inundated with hundreds of applications for its 60 staff, including those working in its bar, dining and kitchen areas.

It staged two special ‘audition days’ for potential employees in the summer.

Turtle Bay is known for its two-for-one cocktails and bottomless brunches, with its specialty Caribbean food including chicken from the jerk pit, goat curry, soul food like fried chicken and macaroni cheese, and West Indian vegan dishes.

Guy Clark, general manager at Turtle Bay Brindleyplace, said: “Birmingham is renowned for being a friendly city and has seen some amazing changes and growth over the past couple of years.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming guests into the venue once the doors are officially open from 30 September. We’ve built a fantastic team who reflect the values of the business and can’t wait to show our customers how great the Turtle Bay experience can be!”

Regional operations manager Carl Jones said Turtle Bay was “incredibly proud” to be bringing a second venue to Birmingham.

He added: “Brindleyplace is a great location, perfectly situated for those looking for a chilled lunchtime venue, somewhere to enjoy post-work cocktails, or for a late-night dinner date.”

Mike Olley, general manager of Westside BID, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Turtle Bay to the district and look forward to seeing their tables packed with hungry diners!”
